Winter Volunteer Opportunities

Pass Volunteer (We are no longer accepting applications for pass volunteer positions, please apply for a non pass position if you'd like to be involved this winter!)

As a Winter Pass Volunteer you will team up with our instructors on the hill one day a week (+5 extra days during busy times) in exchange for a CBMR ski pass. You will demo ski drills, lift and load sit skis or act as a as a “ski buddy” for a family member or friend of a participant with a disability. Some participants travel from across the country to visit us, while others are full time local residents. Volunteers with a passion for the outdoors will assist people with disabilities and contribute to their amazing experience with the ASC.

  • A typical volunteer day runs 9 a.m.- 4 p.m.
  • Volunteers receive an hour lunch break from 12-1 p.m.
  • Volunteers must be intermediate or advanced skiers or snowboarders.
  • All volunteers must agree to a federal background check (every two years).
  • Volunteers are required to attend trainings in November/December.
  • The minimum age to volunteer with the ASC is 16.

Non Pass Volunteer

A non-pass volunteer will have the same responsibilities and experiences as a pass volunteer, but you can make your own schedule. Want to volunteer once a week? Great! Once a month? Perfect! Once a season? We can make it work.
